Set to hit theaters in August 2017, the Samuel Goldywn film "Gook" covers a story rarely told about people during the L.A. Riots.

The film tells the story of Eli (Justin Chon) and Daniel (David So) are two Korean American brothers that run their late father's shoe store in a predominantly African American community of Los Angeles. These two brothers strike up a unique and unlikely friendship with an 11-year-old African American girl, Kamilla (Simone Baker). As Daniel dreams of becoming a recording artist and Eli struggles to keep the store afloat, racial tensions build to a breaking point in L.A. as the "infamous" L.A. Riots break out.

The film includes breakout performances from new and unseen actors and their performance as sen in the trailer definitely leave you wanting to see more.
